Britanee Montano Irvine
Britanee received her Bachelor of Social Work from the University of Utah in 2015. She’s been working in the Social Services field for ten years and has worked with the following populations: adults with disabilities, children on the Autism Spectrum, adolescents with co-occurring mental health and substance use disorder, adolescents in state custody, and families in poverty. She also did an undergraduate practicum with Utah Foster Care where she recruited and trained families interested in becoming foster parents. She has volunteer experience with the Road Home Shelter and helped start their sack lunch program for children residing there. At one time she had her Social Services license but let it expire in 2019. She helped start the Circles Salt Lake Chapter and was the Coach for the first cohort for 1 year.
Britanee’s background in the social services field helps her interpret the data she finds and better support the Circles Chapters by understanding the barriers they have directly working with families in poverty, as well as the barriers they may encounter advocating for change at the macro, mezzo, and micro levels in our State. Understanding what frontline workers experience helps her advocate for best practices with Circles USA for them.
